7:02 am
men in the debate and whether they got too personal. >> tagg romney did that last night. and severe weather overnight. eight people were hurt in storms that were punching their way across the northeast. and a total of five tornados in the area. >> all that moves east. the forecast is really important. also, take a look at this. take a look. it's -- it's what we call the freeze it tease. i don't want to build -- i don't want to raise the bar on "play of the day." but there's a chance, this could be -- freeze it. trust me when i say to you. >> what's the arm gesture? >> again, you have to tune in to find out. >> what a tease. >> a lot going on. we begin with the terrorist's plot in new york. a 21-year-old man from bangladesh has been arrested in a sting operation, after trying to detonate a car bomb.
7:03 am
pierre thomas has the latest. >> reporter: good morning, george. the fbi says there's no doubt the man was hell-bent on causing a massacre blocks away from the world trade center. the target, the financial district, just off wall street. to blow up the federal reserve building. the fbi says quazi mohammad rezwanul ahsan nafis was planning to kill hundreds, as he parked a van that he thought was full of 1,000 pounds of explosives. they say he got out of the van, walked a short distance away to this hotel and dialed a cell phone number he thought would detonate the car bomb. but the bomb was a fake. it was a sting. and the fbi put him in handcuffs. >> he gets a student visa under the pretexts of being a student at a college in missouri. and he comes here with the avowed purpose of committing some sort of jihad here in the
7:04 am
united states. ahsan nafis had arrived last january. the fbi sent an undercover operative to meet nafis after posting claims on the internet. he claimed to be al qaeda. the fbi said it quickly made clear he wanted to commit an attack. he allegedly discussed assassinating president obama. according to the fbi, the suspect planned to kill women and children in cold blood. in the name of osama bin laden. george? >> okay, pierre. thanks very much. now, let's go to the severe storms sweeping the southeastern part of the united states. tornadoes and winds tearing through, on their way to the east coast. they left a big trail of damage. the mid-atlantic is bracing for more storms today. and sam has been tracking all of them at the weather center. >> hey, elizabeth. we lined it out for you yesterday. look at the hot spots from jackson, to memphis, and st. louis. and the pictures will show you
7:05 am
everything blown around and torn down. the fact that we had five reported tornadoes. they have to go in and investigate today, to decide if they're 50-mile-per-hour, 60-mile-per-hour, 80-mile-per-hour, or if that's a twisting damage involved in those areas. that line of storms weakened overnight. by 3:00 in the morning they got calmed down. but they fire up with heat in the afternoon today. from charlotte, to raleigh, to myrtle beach, baltimore, pittsburgh. this is a highly-populated, densely-populated area, rife for some strong thunderstorms. we're going to talk about that and everybody's weather when we come back in a minute. race for the white house, now. "your voice, your vote" with just 19 days to go. and things are heating up even more after that ferocious second debate. one of mitt romney's sons letting loose on how he really feels about president obama overnight. and david muir is here with the details. >> reporter: the campaign telling me this morning that romney's son, tagg, was joking about how frustrating the process can be for the family, when he told a radio host, that while watching that debate, he
7:06 am
wanted to go down and take a swing at the president. overnight, a new sign of how contentious this race has become. tagg romney, telling a radio host, watching that debate, wanted to make him take a swing at the president. >> what is it like for you, to hear the president of the united states, call your dad a liar? >> jump out of your seat. and you want to rush down to the debate stage and take a swing at him. you can't do that because -- well, first, there's a lot of secret service between you and him. and because it's also the nature of the process. >> reporter: it comes after the town hall debate, with the president and mitt romney just feet apart, talking over each other. the president never called romney a, quote, liar. but overnight, the president did take aim at something mitt romney said at the debate. talking about hiring women as governor. >> i went to women's groups. and they brought us binders full of women. >> we don't have to order up some binders to find qualified,
7:07 am
talented, driven, young women. >> reporter: the romney campaign arguing it's a distraction from the real issue, most important to women, the economy. arguing 3.6 million more women in poverty. >> this president has failed america's women. >> reporter: overnight, the late night comics with a binder full of jokes. >> he had binders full of women. his policy towards women is clear. we have to alphabetize them. >> reporter: on the binder blunder, governor romney tweeting out, i understand the challenges that women face. tweeting a link to testimonials to women who worked with him as governor. both sides with an intense focus on women that could be the factor come election day. let's talk about that. nicolle wallace, top strategist for republican candidates like george w. bush and sarah palin. let's pick up on the binders full of women. we saw mitt romney make huge gains with women after the first
7:08 am
debate. democrats claim this will block that gain. >> we women are complicated and forgiving creatures. as voters, i think all women are making trade-offs with both of these guys. i don't think anyone, men, but particularly women, were attracted to the nastiness that they saw in that debate. and while people came off and said, oh, obama's back. he's back. i don't know where he thinks he made gains if he's trying to specifically appeal to women. women, more than men, are turned off when it gets below the belt. >> we saw that on focus groups after the debate the other night. i wonder how tagg romney's comments are going to play. i think people are probably forgiving of family members. >> the family member of someone running for president is nearly unbearable. if there's any political family in this country right now, you know, i think people have an appetite to see more of what they're really like. it's the romneys. so, it's sort of nice to see them express something
7:09 am
incredibly human and real. >> one of the things that both candidates have compete for after the debate is not enough talk about what they would actually do over the next four years. >> i find it stunning that that whole debate started and ended and president obama never made a single reference to the future. and mitt romney made precious few. whoever wins, they will have done so, spending the least amount of time talking about the future, out of any campaign in modern history. and campaigns are almost always about winning the debate of the future. and i think it's a sign of how cynical this campaign is on both sides, that neither one is talking about the future. >> nicolle wallace, thanks very much. let's go to josh and the news headlines. >> we're going to begin with a light show overnight in the california skies. all thanks to haley's comet. stargazers and plain folks, walking or driving around, were amazed at the streaking fireballs and the loud booms that were observed over the
7:10 am
skies of northern california. >> look over and saw, like, an object in reddish/orange in color. as it went away, it was getting larger. >> this thing was going sideways across the sky. >> reporter: astronomers say the earth is passing through a stream of debris from alley's com comet. >> you saw a small car-sized piece of rock and metal from the asteroid belt, crash into layers of the earth's atmosphere, ionizing. >> reporter: the national weather service says warm temperatures and cloudless skies are helping to make the bright lights more visible. the meteor shower will be visible through sunday. it is also extraordinarily cool. we're going to turn, now, to new concerns about the security of the nation's banking system. u.s. officials say iranian hackers have struck again. this time, disrupting the websites of capital one websites
7:11 am
and bb&t. this joins several other banks that have been hit. service has been disrupted. no money has the been stolen. but the hackers are threatening more attacks today. and new details this morning about security at the u.s. consulate in libya before last month's deadly attack. reuters is reporting that a little-known british firm chosen by the state department hired libyan guards with little or no experience. two of whom were later accused of throwing a bomb into the u.s. compound back in april. meanwhile, here at home, we learned overnight, the wildfire you see here is threatening some 100 homes in santa barbara, california. it's about half contained. fire crews have made progress and have lifted dozens of evacuation orders. that is good news. also in california, four mechanics working at the burbank airport got the surprise of their lives, when they started working in the back of a private 747. e balance, tipped the tail back.
7:12 am
popped the nose in the air. inflatable support kept the men from falling. they solved the problem. and two brothers in upstate new york have done something i don't know if any of us could have done. they won $5 million on a lottery scratch ticket six years ago. waited until now, to collect the money. the brothers said they were worried the cash might negatively influence their lives. they wanted to take time to plan everything correctly. one was getting engaged. didn't want that to influence that decision. they cashed the ticket 11 days before it was going to expire. >> i guess they heard the stories that the lottery changes your life and not necessarily in a good way. >> what did they do with the ticket? >> i would be terrified. i would look at it 100 times a day. every day. >> or put it in a bank account and get interest? >> i think it's smart. now, everything is well-organized and planned. >> good for them.
7:13 am
the latest blow for lance armstrong. the superstar cyclist has been stripped of his medals. now, the evidence he doped for years is costing him sponsorships and the leadership of his live strong charity. neal karlinsky brings us that from seattle. >> reporter: it's been a devastating 24 hours from armstrong. his sponsors have been dropping like flies. there's threats of civil litigation. it's as if his entire legacy is being erased right before his eyes. stripped of his tour de france titles by the u.s. anti-doping agency, lance armstrong the now being stripped of his livelihood. like dominos, big-money sponsors are dropping the disgraced champion in droves. anheuser-busch, frs sports drinks, trek bicycles, giro helmets, and nike, which wrote its own damming guilty verdict, due to the seemingly insurmountable evidence that lance armstrong parents pated in
7:14 am
doping and misled nike for more than a decade, we have terminated our contract with him. >> the fact he made millions by cheating, by deceiving children and cancer survivors and some that looked ed up to him as a leader and icon, it's one of the worst stories in sports. >> reporter: the drug-tainted fairly tale made armstrong a very wealthy man, with his own private jet. mansions in austin, texas, and aspen, colorado. a vast art collection and more. analysts estimate he was making $15 million a year for more than a decade. all apparently based on a lie. >> lance armstrong's earning power is completely done. he's in some way going to be relegated to being a normal, everyday person again. >> reporter: at the olympic training center in colorado, an armstrong quote has now been removed. in the midst of the collapse wednesday, armstrong still maintained his innocence, stepped down as chairman of live strong, the foundation he
7:15 am
created to fight cancer. now, just days from celebrating their 15th anniversary, live strong's leadership can only hope that donations don't dry up with lance armstrong's reputation. >> i'm always concerned about the future of our organization. and that's because the mission is so important. >> reporter: a lot of people wonder, why doesn't armstrong just come out and explain himself? well, insiders say it may be that he fears even more civil liability and possibly even perjury charges he changes his story now. >> neal, this is so devastating as you point out. but lance armstrong is an amazing competitor, as well. do you have any sense of what kind of comeback he might be plotting? >> that is impossible to say. people close to him say that his absolute plan right now is to lay low. he plans to take part in live strong. he is still on the board. he is passionate about cancer. but he needs to keep a low profile for the very near future at least. >> okay, neal karlinsky.
7:16 am
thanks very much. now, to a huge headline in personal health this morning. getting an annual physical may not help save your life. there's a new study with 180,000 people that shows the reverse. abc's chief health and medical editor, dr. richard besser, is here with what you need to know. do you agree with this study? >> this is a bombshell. doctors and patients all believe in getting the annual physical. but this is really well done. and i agree with the finding. this was a global study. they looked at 14 studies around the world over 50 years. they found that getting an annual physical did not decrease the chance you were going to die at all over the course of the study. it didn't do that. >> you do say there are tests that you should get. what should you be doing for your health? >> well, every two years, you should get your blood pressure checked. you should get your cholesterol checked. every year, you should get your flu shot. but you can get that at the drug story.
7:17 am
if anything doesn't feel right, you should see your doctor right away. >> if you don't get an annual checkup, you should have frequent conversations or regular conversations with your doctor, right? >> right. i'm a big believer in prevention. but when you go see your doctor it's all about testing and not talking, you're not going to get the benefits. every time you see your doctor, you want to spend more time sitting with your clothes on, talking than you are in that paper gown. >> you say talk about sleep. >> sleep and stress and smoking and your weight and exercise. those are the things that, in the long run, are going to lead you to a healthier life. it's not all those poking and prodding and testing that you're getting. >> i'm curious, rich. it's one thing to say that these annual physicals aren't going to help you. they're not going to hurt you, are they? >> surprisingly. >> your pocketbook. >> the more tests you get, the more things you'll be diagnosed with. getting some of the diagnoses doesn't help. you may end up on more medicines. but it doesn't mean you're going
7:18 am
to live longer and healthier. if your doctor is working with you on a problem, go every year and get checked. if you're a child, a pregnant woman. but otherwise, you don't need to go every year. >> wow. big news today. >> it is. >> rich, thank you so much. rite's time, now, for the weather and sam champion. >> hey, elizabeth. we started in the start of the show with the strong weather in the middle of the country. but then, i have one follow-up question. what was the name of the airline, josh, that had the problem. can you zoom in a little bit? can you just tell me? >> it's champion air. my question for you. two questions. why have you been holding out on us with the private plane the whole time? and number two, what's wrong with your plane? >> ladies and gentlemen, at champion air -- >> it's tipping over. >> the trip's over before it begins. let's get to the boards. we have this area of low pressure. a big one. this is the strong winds that move out of the plains and towards the great lakes here. the winds are going to be

7:32 am
minutes away. abbie boudreau is in portland, oregon, with the latest on the story and the search this morning. abbie, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, elizabeth. when whitney heichel did not show up fwr work at this starbucks on tuesday morning, those closest to her, her friends and family, knew something had to be very wrong. overnight, police frantically searched this portland, oregon, park. exclusive aerials from katv show investigators walking a grid, part of a massive manhunt for whitney heichel, seen here with her husband, in this exclusive video obtained by abc news. >> we have detectives working on it. we'll be able to jump on leads right away. the colder the leads get, more difficult it becomes. >> reporter: the 21-year-old vanished during her five-minute commute to work. investigators fear they're in a race against time. her black ford explorer was found abandoned in this walmart parking lot tuesday afternoon.
7:33 am
the passenger side window shattered. they found glass in the parking lot outside of heichel's home. >> i'm not prepared to say this is broken glass from her vehicle. >> reporter: heichel' husband claims she kissed him good-bye and left for her job at starbucks just before her 7:00 a.m. shift on tuesday. >> she got ready. her normal thing. got up. kissed me good-bye. and i woke up and said, bye, i'll see you when you get home. >> reporter: when the barista didn't show up at work, her boss called clint, asking where she was. >> i called her several times. i texted her several times. and actually about 9:00, 9:30-ish, her phoneot to the point where you would call and it went straight to voicemail. >> reporter: just before 10:00 a.m., he called 911. police haven't released the video. but say surveillance cameras recorded her black suv pulling into this gas station around
7:34 am
9:00 a.m. her atm card was used. clint says the bank record showed the card was used eight minutes later. >> it's the vehicle. we know through bank records it's the card. >> reporter: police are not saying what led them to search that wooded area. but they are holding a news conference later this morning. and hopefully at that point, we'll learn new details. >> abbie. thank you so much. let's bring in former consultant and special agent at the fbi, brad garrett, in washington, d.c. this morning. i know the first calls came to whitn whitney's home around 7:00 a.m. it took her husband nearly three hours to call 911. is that timeframe troubling to you? >> a little bit. you have to look at when an adult goes missing, what in their life could have caused it.
7:35 am
look at the husband. what was his relationship with whitney? were there issues? did he have any reason to harm her? and you look at her life. if you eliminate both of those, you wonder, why did he wait? i don't know. he's calling on the phone. he's left apparently, a number of voicemails. he sent a number of texts. he doesn't get an answer. but that is a block, if i were investigating this case, i would fill in. >> we should point out the husband is cooperating fully with police. and there could be a huge treasure trove of evidence with the discovery of this suv. lots of dna, fingerprints inside and outside that car. >> that's exactly right. and the thought that the glass from her -- the driver's side window is possibly in the parking lot at the apartment complex suggests to me that she may have interrupted someone stealing her car, panicked. they grabbed her.
7:36 am
and it supports the idea that they went to a number of gas stations. they purchased a small quantity of gas and moved on. it's not planned. we don't know what we're going to do now. we were going to steal a car. and now, we have a live person with us. >> finally, the car was left in a walmart parking lot. lots of cameras in those walmart parking lots. >> walmart is great with surveillance cameras. so, the idea they might have a shot of someone dropping that car, could be a great lead. >> all right. brad garrett, thank you so much. we'll be staying on top of this search and this investigation. george? we have another disturbing case, now. a wealthy california businessman, arrested for murdering his wife in a multimillion-dollar mansion. peter chadwick has come up with an alibi, claiming his wife was killed by another man, who forced him to get rid of the body. he's a prominent real estate investor, now accused of murdering his wife for financial gain.
7:37 am
a crime for which he insists he is not guilty. but now, "the l.a. times" reports, 48-year-old peter chadwick has given police a bizarre story, about what really happened last wednesday behind the walls of the sprawling multimillion-dollar mansion in newport beach, california. chadwick is saying another man killed his wife, qui, seen in a facebook photo. chadwick told investigators the real murderer forced him to load her body into his lexus and dispose of it near the u.s./mexico border. >> it appears the relationship had been on the rocks for a period of time. there was a possible divorce in the offing. a lot of money involved with this relationship, as well as both families. >> reporter: police grew suspicious when qui chadwick never picked her kids up aed the bus stop. when authorities went to the home, there were signs of a
7:38 am
struggle. a scene so gruesome, they believed qui was dead. they have not recovered the body but arrested chadwick, four miles from the border, after he called san diego police. >> mr. chadwick was in his car for about 18 hours with the body. so, it could be anywhere in southern california right now. >> reporter: california highway patrol officer was tailing chadwick's car south. and said no other passengers were in the car. his story doesn't add up. >> there's a lot of forensic evidence we recovered. there's a series of witnesses that have been interviewed. we're very confident when the facts come out in court, it's going to be very clear. >> reporter: chadwick's attorney won't comment. his client is currently being held on $1.5 million bail. for "good morning america," david wright, abc news, los angeles. it is time, now, for the weather. and sam champion. >> we're going to talk about the timing of these storms because
7:39 am
they're not when you would normally expect them to be on the eastern seaboard. look at the red zone. and find out if you're in the middle of this. this is the system that sets up and storms all night long. raleigh, norfolk, washington, d.c. myrtle beach, and charleston, south carolina, will get powerful thunderstorms on the overnight. this is what happens in the northwest. see that front right there? today, it's not a big deal for you. tomorrow and the next day, that front drops towards california, call it, maybe toward the bay area. that means we're wet and rainy late tonight into the day tomorrow. but today, you'll carve out a decent day. a look at the big board. you can see it's warm in the >> america's weather, brought to
7:40 am
you by macy's. george? elizabeth? >> thank you, sam. here's a question. are you a honey boo boo fan? or you wonder what all of the fuss is about? we're going to look at the redneck revolution taking over reality tv. and the prime minister from australia, taking a very public tumble. wearing high heels. is it worth the risk of falling?
